Forbidden Planet Movie Quotes

Famous Forbidden Planet movie quotes and dialogs:

Movie Forbidden Planet was directed by Fred M. Wilcox. Cyril Hume wrote the screenplay using Irving Block and Allen Adler's story, which was inspired by Shakespeare's play The Tempest.

"In the final decade of the 21st century, men and women in rocket ships landed on the moon. By 2200 AD they had reached the other planets of our solar system. Almost at once there followed the discovery of hyperdrive though which the speed of light was first attained and later greatly surpassed. And so at last mankind began the conquest and colonization of deep space."

Cookie: Another one of them new worlds. No beer, no women, no pool parlors, nothin'. Nothin' to do but throw rocks at tin cans, and we gotta bring our own tin cans.

Robby: If you do not speak English, I am at your disposal with 187 other languages along with their various dialects and sub-tongues.

Commander Adams: Nice planet you have here. High oxygen content.
Robby: I seldom use it myself, sir. It promotes rust.

Dr. Morbius: Do you understand the mechanism, Robby?
Robby: Yes, Morbius. A simple blaster.

Altaira: I've always so terribly wanted to meet a young man, and now three at once.

Altaira: But you keep helping me. After all, you're not Robby.
Lt. Farman: [chuckles] I wouldn't mind being like Robby in certain ways. Uh, that's only in certain ways, of course.
Altaira: I can see that was probably very clever, but I don't seem to understand it.

Chief Engineer Quinn: I'll bet any quantum mechanic in the service would give the rest of his life to fool around with this gadget.

Robby: Quiet please. I am analyzing. Yes, relatively simple alcohol molecules with traces of fusel oil. Would 60 gallons be sufficient?

Commander Adams: I'm in command of 18 competitively selected super-perfect physical specimens with an average age of 24.6 who have been locked up in hyperspace for 378 days. It would have served you right if he... they... oh go on, get out of here before I have you run out of the area under guard - and then I'll put more guards on the guards.

Altaira: Where have you been? I've beamed and beamed.
Robby: Sorry, miss. I was giving myself an oil-job.
Altaira: Robby, I must have a new dress, right away.
Robby: Again?
Altaira: Oh, but this one must be different! Absolutely nothing must show - below, above or through.
Robby: Radiation-proof?
Altaira: No, just eye-proof will do.

Robby: Thick and heavy?
Altaira: Oh, no, no, it’s got to be the softest, loveliest thing you’ve ever made for me, and fit in all the right places, with lots and lots of star sapphires.
Robby: Star sapphires take a week to crystallize properly, would diamonds or emeralds do?
Altaira: Well, if they’re large enough.

Dr. Morbius: In times long past, this planet was the home of a mighty, noble race of beings who called themselves the Krell. Ethically and technologically they were a million years ahead of humankind, for in unlocking the meaning of nature they had conquered even their baser selves, and when in the course of eons they had abolished sickness and insanity, crime and all injustice, they turned, still in high benevolence, upwards towards space. Then, having reached the heights, this all-but-divine race disappeared in a single night, and nothing was preserved above ground.

Dr. Morbius: Now, over here you see the electromagnetic waves of my brain sending that indicator up about halfway. I gather that one of their own young comparable to a seven-year-old child was normally expected to send that all the way to the top which by Krell standards classifies me as a low-grade moron. Yet I have an officially recorded IQ of 183.

Dr. Morbius: It's all right, sir. A commanding officer doesn't need brains. Just a good loud voice, huh?

Doc Ostrow: The total potential here must be nothing less than astronomical.
Dr. Morbius: Nothing less. The number 10 raised almost literally to the power of infinity.

Dr. Morbius: Yes, a single machine, a cube 20 miles on each side.

Doc Ostrow: [while showing the captain a plaster cast of a monster foot print] Anywhere in the galaxy this is a nightmare.

Doc Ostrow: Monsters. Monsters from the id.

Dr. Morbius: The fool, the meddling idiot. As though his ape's brain could contain the secrets of the Krell.

Dr. Morbius: Why did you jumble that combination?
Commander Adams: Whatever you know in here, your twin self in the tunnel knows too.
Dr. Morbius: [angrily] I'm not a monster, you...
Commander Adams: [grappling with Morbius] We're all part monsters in our subconscious, so we have laws and religion!

Dr. Morbius: Guilty! Guilty! My evil self is at that door, and I have no power to stop it!

Commander Adams: Alta, about a million years from now the human race will have crawled up to where the Krell stood in their great moment of triumph and tragedy. And your father's name will shine again like a beacon in the galaxy. It's true, it will remind us that we are, after all, not God.
